Science fiction literature, one of the most popular and entertaining genres in modern fiction, has been read and loved by children and adults for decades. From the earliest pulp publications to modern masterpieces, science fiction short stories and novels have often functioned as a lens through which we express our sense of wonder, marvel at the possibilities of new technologies, and engage in our wildest imaginings. Join us as we celebrate the fantastic and strange in science fiction literature.

7:00 pm - 9:00 pm - Whitsett Room, Fourth Floor, Sierra Hall 451

The College of Social and Behavioral Sciences presents

A Richard W. Smith Lecture in Cultural Studies featuring:

Pal Zak on Recent Research on Brain Chemistry:  A Revolution in the Sciences of Good and Evil

Why do human beings engage in courageous acts of compassion but also perpetrate violence?  Could the apparent flip-flopping morality of our species have a hidden explanation?

Paul Zak's new book The Moral Molecule:  The Source of Love and Prosperity is a first-hand account of the discovery of a molecule that makes us moral.  It reveals that compassion is part of our human nature, why loneliness can kill you, and why your neighbor may be a psychopath.

From the laboratory to the jungles of Papua New Guinea, Paul Zak takes you on an amazing journey that reveals what it means to be human.

This event is scheduled for Tuesday, November 13th, at 7:00 p.m. in the Whitsett Room, Sierra Hall 451.  Reservations are requested.
